The Brooks piece sounds like a variant on the old "We should just go back to how things were in the 1950s" song and dance.

Um, okay. Or maybe we should go live in the Andromeda galaxy. Or go play patty-cake with triceratops in the Late Cretaceous 5000 years ago when people and dinosaurs peacefully co-existed ouside the Garden.

Or any other fantasy situation we can dream up because "going back" to an earlier time is only that: a fantasy.

Brooks can wax nostalgic about calling the English teacher Daddy-O all he wants. The rest of the world isn't going to stop and wait for his approval before marching on.


Sign me up as a foot soldier in your Army, Dan! :)


Jaz, you are so on. It's that nostalgia for the past when everything was better. People knew their places back then ;)
